A group from Surfing The Nations will be heading out to Cox’s Bazaar, Bangladesh today acting as ambassadors of surf. When STN first arrived in Bangladesh in 2001, the word ‘surf’ and subsequently ‘surfboard’ did not exist. Now there are 70 Bengali surf boys and girls who have caught the stoke.

Held captive and taught to fear the ocean by a strict Islamic government, a majority of the people don’t know how to swim. Yet their love for surfing takes them into the water anyway, into an experience they never imagined possible. STN will hold their fifth annual Aloha Surf Classic surf contest.
